Tom Daschle's blueprint for health reform
Tom Daschle, the former Senator who will be Barack Obama's Secretary of Health and Human Services, shares a lot of his new boss's views but in his recent book on health reform he goes beyond Obama's agenda, according to the Wall Street Journal health blog. In his book Critical: What We Can Do About the Health Care Crisis, Daschle argues that all Americans should be required to buy health insurance—a key difference from Obama, who argues that only children should be required to have health insurance. Daschle also calls for the creation a Federal Health Board. The board wouldn’t regulate the private insurance market, but it would have power over federal healthcare programs.
